HYDERABAD: A boy was found dead under suspicious circumstances in an agricultural field near Shamirpet on Thursday. Locals found the body of a boy aged around eight years in the fields on outskirts of the Kesaram village under Shamirpet police limits and informed police. Police said the boy was clad in a black trouser and green shirt.
"There are only minor bruises on the body of the boy. But they are not so serious to cause his death," Shamirpet police inspector Narender Reddy said.
Police suspect the boy might have wandered into the fields and died of natural causes.
The boy seems to be a child of a daily wage earner or brick-kiln worker, police said. A case of suspicious death was registered and the boy's body shifted to Gandhi hospital for post-mortem and autopsy.
